Is training done in person or remotely?

Initial Training is provided by the Vendor, and for any additional training it depends on the project. Shorter and less-involved projects will most likely warrant over-the-phone counseling via a teleconference, providing literature, or via video/audio. For longer, more detailed projects, it is suggested to get together with the Vendor. (The customer might decide to send a trainer to overseas to provide training to vendor's staff; or ask vendor to send staff members to Australia for training)
